Fortunately, this is something that can be remedied with inverted nipple correction.

Inverted nipple correction procedure
Inverted nipple correction aims to have nipples that protrude just above the areola. Our surgeons can also ensure you maintain nipple sensitivity and the ability to breastfeed.
Inverted nipple correction is considered a day surgery, so you will be able to return home as soon as the effects of the anaesthetic wear off.
The procedure involves gently pulling out the nipple. The fibres that are within the nipple are then spread out, which helps to ensure the nipple has an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The incision is then closed and has dressing applied.
The procedure is performed as a day case and you will be able to return home once the effects of the anaesthetic have worn off.
Recovery after inverted nipple correction
Compared to other surgical procedures on the breasts and nipples, inversion nipple correction is relatively simple. Therefore, you will have minimal recovery time.
You will have bruising, swelling and pain in your breasts following the surgery. This is a completely normal side effect. You will be able to take medication to alleviate pain if necessary. It may be necessary to take time off work to help with your recovery.
The stitches will be removed between one to two weeks after your procedure. You will need to avoid vigorous physical activity for the first three weeks.
